PHENOMENAL! Everything from the service to the food was absolutely amazing. Our server and bartender were extremely well versed on both the menus and area making several awesome recommendations. The lamb will blow your mind. We will be back!

This was my 2nd time here - brought an out of state dignitary & small entourage because they wanted to try it. I am familiar with good quality and DC high prices however if I'm going to spend $100 on a filet mignon (and we had several) it should come without being full of tendons and chewy unmentionables. The sides of brussel sprouts and potatoes were unremarkable & greasy. We had a special occasion & the waiter forgot.
Most annoying was the upstairs maitre'd, Mr. Murphy can be disrespectful and prickly - he was dismissive of my requests for a table facing the lobby; gave me a lecture on how that's reserved for VIPs, and he's disrespectful and bossy to the staff which was a total turn off, he dictates an noticeably tense mood in this upstairs dining room. The waiter seemed to be pushy for us to "order all courses at one time" (which I dislike immensely) --like they wanted to get out of there in a hurry. All in all, I'd say save your money - there are MUCH better restaurants in DC with great service, that make each guest feel special. This is not it.

A very special evening. The setting is beautiful. It over looks the spacious lobby of the Trump International Hotel giving it a sophisticated feel. My wife and I shared a salad ( Caesar & Crab Cake Croutons. WOW! ) and the prime 36oz Porterhouse steak salt aged 45 days (another WOW!) Service was outstanding. Pricey? Sure, but well worth it. We highly recommend BLT PRIME by David Burke.

Service in general was slow and sluggish. Kitchen was late as we had to wait to have the food serviced. Otherwise the food was fine but Mastros and other comparable steakhouses are far superior.

Excellent service and our filets were done to perfection. We appreciated our servers suggestion to share sides due to the size of the portions. And the popovers were wonderful, appreciate receiving a copy of the recipe.

Excellent service and food with great presentation. Unique dishes with lots of choices. The pop-overs are great and they pack up anything you can't eat to take home. Parking is validated but you still pay about $15. For people who have mobility problems the stairs are steep but they have a slow chairlift in a pinch. I have been there 4 times and plan to go back.

Our server didn’t know the menu. She also didn’t seem to understand us: she didn’t fulfill at least two of our requests, she didn’t understand my question about what vegetables were in a dish, she didn’t know if she could offer me a mixed green salad... this is just for starters. I’ve had much better experiences at Prime before. While our dishes were great, the service did detract from the experience.

We had brunch last year at BLT Prime and again this year. One of the dishes we ordered was the same: the lobster Cobb salad. As before it was delicious, although perhaps with a tad less lobster and a tad less flavor. The other dish we ordered was also delicious: crab cakes with waffles and poached eggs. The waffles and crab cakes were somewhat spicy. One of the poached eggs was hard cooked, the other just slghtly runny. The eggs needed more of the hollandaise sauce, but I learned last year that if I ordered extra sauce I would be charged. We each had a $16 brunch drink. The food is definitely a good value, the drinks are not. The place was not busy, but the servers spent most of the time laughing and chatting among themselves rather than seeing to their customers. We love the trolleys that bring the dishes you order to the table. The place is gorgeous in an over-the-top way.

Steaks came out cold. Did not have the wine I ordered so they took forever and then “upgraded” the bottle to something that wasn’t an upgrade at all. Service was okay.

My brothers and I take our dad somewhere special every year for his birthday and father's day, (this year was his 80th birthday) and we took him to Washington DC. In all the years of taking dad out, this meal and experience at BLT Prime in the Trump Hotel in Washington DC was hands down the best! The staff was top notch, Mr. Stinehelfer, Ms. Barwick and support crew made this a perfect evening!

Our 3 time dining at BLT. We were greeted with a salmon appetizer compliments of the chef. We ordered drinks then enjoyed the tasty popovers. For appetizers we had octopus, one tentacle was grilled and the other was served chopped in a Peruvian chipotle sauce. Very nice. Also, we enjoyed the candied bacon the at table caramelizing. For dinner we had scollops and a bone in filet which were delicious. We enjoyed crazy corn and Brussel sprouts. For dessert we had a scrumptious peanut butter butter chocolate mousse with vanilla bean ice cream. The wait staff was very pleasant and attentive. The restaurant is open, looking onto the atrium. The music for the bar area at the otherwise of the atrium was a bit loud. That is my only complaint and this restaurant deserves it’s 5 star rating.

Food was very bad steak dry with no taste , potato’s horrible no taste, Brussel sprouts horrible
The only thing that was decent was the mushrooms we ordered and of course the tuna tartare but how can you mess that up
